This is a place of Buddhist Worship in the East Champaran District of Bihar. This place is famous because you find the world's largest Buddhist Stupa over here. This stupa was built to mark and honor the last days of Gautama Buddha, before his enlightenment which he spent here. It is said that Buddha handed over his begging bowl to the Lichhvis and told them to go back to Vaishali after his death. The Lichhvis only built this stupa which was initially of mud but was later renovated during the reign of the Mauryas and Kushanas. Till now, this place is only known for this stupa which people come to see in large numbers theoughout the year.

The well preserved ancient Newar town, known for its artistic excellence, splendid courtyard and palaces, pottery and weaving industries and rich customs and culture, is a ‘living heritage’ in itself. The literal translation of ‘Bhaktapur’ i.e. “place of devotees” is well justified by its magnificent temples, artwork, festivals and religious celebrations. It was enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The place is like an open air museum, best for aimless wandering and exploration. The ‘culture gem’ of Nepal, Bhaktapur is extremely picturesque and inspiring. So simply put on your best walking shoes and get ready to have a good peek into the famous Newar culture and tradition.

Kathmandu is a city stuck in a time warp, it is a city with a mind of its own and an impenetrable one at that. With its medieval temples, ethnic groups, convoluted lanes, noisy bazaars and an overwhelming number of hotels, this place is several things at once. Travellers just can't get enough of the intoxicating cocktail that is Kathmandu and the locals are well aware of this fact. It is timeless and often akin to an exotic fairytale and a visit is therefore imperative.

One of the most colourful and indiscreet cities of India, Varanasi is one of the seven holiest cities for the Hindus. Also known as Kashi and Benaras, this place is known for its temples, ghats and the colourful people. The narrow alleys and crowded streets seem to be extremely blissful in spite of all the noise and chaos all around. People come here just to take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Varanasi is also known as Uttar Kashi and is situated on the western banks of the Ganges. It is said that a dip in this river frees one from a lifetime of sins. People even say that death here is auspicious as people attain moksha if they die here. Some people also come here tp creamate their loved ones and the sound of the holy temple bells are really soothing music to the ears.

Pokhara's beauty is best expressed in poetry, yet even a thousand odes wouldn't suffice. It is the perfect place to relax and soak in the views of snow-capped mountains and the meandering river. For those who find solace in adventure sports, Pokhara is just the right place. Despite being home to a number of fancy hotels, it is simple and as laid-back as it could possibly be. Interestingly, this little escape is also the gateway to some of the finest treks in the world.
